Has anyone else encountered this bug? It's as if half my eyeballs are above the waterline and the other half below, with perfect vision of both views. Clearly IRL trying this would just give you a blurry mess but I'm hoping it can be fixed so that it either shows one or the other, not both at the same time.

The third screenshot shows a slightly different problem, whereby looking down mostly the view is of the top of the water as you'd expect, but the area near the player doesn't show any water but instead shows what is underwater, as if the player had some miraculous ability to push back the water from just around him! As I turned left or right, this waterless area remained around me. I also started to drown, so it seems the game considered me to be underwater, despite the fact that I'm clearly looking down at the surface of the water.

yup, got the same "bug". it's probably not fixable and will probably not be fixed by beth anytime soon. as long as somebody doesn't look at everything in weird angles and just plays the game he'll most likely not even notice it - so it doesn't matter to bethesda. ;-)

Yes, that's the normal behaviour of the engine. It is a bit shoddy, but as Torminater says, I wouldn't expect to see a fix for that.

Ah, that's a shame, guess I'll have to live with having one eyeball on my forehead and one on my chin ;) It's not like you have to do anything particularly strange to make it happen, pretty much just get in that pool of water. Maybe it doesn't happen so much where the water's deeper, so that you're not walking along the bottom (although I'm not sure I was there either).

Interestingly, I've never noticed this. But that's probably since I play in 3rd person.

@s4n exactly right I have always been annoyed by this in all TES games to more or less extent. Compounded I think by shaders and post-processing.

Unfortunately, a lot of games have problems in the shaders area. My biggest annoyance right now is those fugly shadows. Why try and make a game so beautiful and ruin it? Boggles my mind.
